Learning to Buy Groceries

When refugees arrive in a new country, many things are strange and unfamiliar. Mrs. Martin leads a refugee ministry in Las Vegas, Nevada, called Safely Home. As she meets and become friends with refugees from Iraq, Burma, Cuba, Colombia, and many more countries, she shows them how to accomplish everyday tasks, such as buying groceries. She teaches them how to speak English. She tells them that Jesus loves them.

You and your preschooler can pretend you are learning to buy groceries. Print this page and help your preschooler say the words in English and in Spanish as he colors the fruits. Then take the page to the grocery store and use it as a guide. Ask your preschooler to help you find each fruit as you say its name in Spanish and in English.
